Election Day 2012

Let me start out this post by saying that if you came to see alot of pictures then you are in the wrong place. I just came here today to talk to you about something that some folks will not talk about with their BFF. I came to talk to you about voting.

I look at voting as a priviledge or even a duty as an American citizen. But either way you look at it it surely is an HONOR. It is one of those things that I would walk miles to do if I had to. (even in the rain or snow!!!) (even barefoot!!) Okay, I think I made my point.

Now some people say they don't have time or that it doesn't matter if they vote or not, after all it is just one vote and that does not make a difference. Other say they don't like either candidate and don't want either one. And still others suggest that they have not heard the news stations say anything to make them want to vote or that they did not have time to watch the debates. 

Well I must be a bit different than your average "Joe" or "Jane" because I do not cast a vote depending on what the news stations or reporters have to say about them. I can look at the big picture and see that we are dealing with human beings and non of us are perfect. So I believe it is safe to say that , there are no perfect candidates, just human ones! I don't pick a candidate on the clothes he or she wears. Or where they might live. I do not decide based on whether or not they are a Democrat or a Republican.

As a Christian, I make my choices based on God's word. Things that factor in my decision are things like where they stand on abortion and gay marriage. How they look at dealing with the national debt or how they feel about the use of the welfare system. I do not even care what the newspaper or CNN or Fox News have to say.

One thing I know for sure is that even if you don't vote we will still have an election and there will still be a winner. So I guess I have to say that I hope you cared more about this election than who wins "Survivor" or American  Idol". 


  1. I always vote and feel that it is an honor. I only wish more people like me would have voted yesterday :o)

    1. Yes Janet, I wish all red blooded Americans would take voting seriously. It seems they will we text in a vote for there favorite American Idol but yet will not take time to vote for the leader of our country. And then some wonder why our country is in the place we are in.

  2. Amen! Well said! I agree, too - I didn't listen to any of the debates, but I did find out where the national and state candidates stood on the issues. I went online and searched out information about our local county judges and fire department board. I checked out all of the initiatives on the ballot, too. Then I compared all those positions with what the Lord tells us is right and picked the candidate closest to His Word. Voting is a privilege that many people in other countries do not have and I take it seriously.


I try my best to read every comment. And I love hearing from you all.
